Recoil and What to do about it!

Recoil and what to do about it?

I've enjoyed shooting and loading for the 450 Bushmaster for awhile now. The recoil was always an issue. After doing some extensive research and development I have come up with a solution! I call it the "A2 Reducer"(Patent Pending) It is a standard A2 butt stock modified to accept 2 of any 7/8" recoil reducer commonly used in shot guns and will work on any AR style rifle with the standard A2 butt stock. It is extremely effective because of two things. The first is weight. Weight is great when it comes to recoil. The A2 Reducer stock alone weighs19.2oz. 7.4 ozs more then a standard A2 stock. The second reason is the reactive weight added by the recoil reduces which is about 11.6 ozs The total weight is about 31.5 ozs with the 2 recoil reducers properly installed. I have tested several recoil reducers using an accelerometer and found a combination that shows a reduction in initial recoil from 24Gs to about16Gs and the recoil time is extended from .05 sec. to about .1 sec. creating more of a push than a sudden shock. Other advantages of the A2 Reducer are balance and a quick follow up shot as well as more enjoyable shooting at the range.
I am offering this first to members of 450Bushmaster.net at a reduced price. With or without the recoil reducers installed. If interested please P.M. me here. Thank You. Image Image Image

Looks like a good idea. What's holding the recoil reducers in place?

Ah, this is what you were talking about. Very cool stuff.

Do you know if it will fit in an A1?

The butt stock is cast with high impact polymers with (2) 7/8" x 5" cavities. They are a very tight fit. shoved all the way forward and held in place with 2 rubber gromet compressed by the trap door.

I'm not sure if the A1 and A2 stocks will interchange. This is a modified A2 stock.

Oh, so this isn't a modified stock, it's purpose designed and built?

It is designed for 1 purpose. To hold recoil reducers in place.
The exterior is the same. The interior has been changed to accept (2) of any 7/8" x 5" or less recoil reducers. There are several on the market. There are other reducers with 3/4" and 1" Dia. But, They don't fit the purpose very well.

Now, if that stock would accept a quality permanent recoil pad, we'd be all set.

The A1 and A2 stocks do interchange! You will need the spacer to use the A2.
